I always struggle to find a streaming partner of a show I want to watch. Even when I do, I am not sure if it is the cheapest one. I wonder if I can just ask someone every time I want to watch something and he/she tell me the best streaming partner for me.

What it does

Watch Dog Amazon Alexa skill allows you to just say which show do you want to watch and Alexa will automatically find streaming partners for you.

How I built it

I used Just Watch API to find the streaming partner.

Challenges I ran into

I was not able to find just watch API URL, after a lot of googling I was able to find an MIT Licence based python library for this.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I had a really bad fever, I almost decided to give up, but I wanted to complete my project and prove others that I can still do it.

What I learned

I have to manage my work properly next time, there might be chances of falling in the last days.

What's next for Watch Dog

I will integrate machine learning so that Alexa can recommend streaming partner and shows as per user's watch/search history so that they can subscribe to right streaming partner next time.
